Review of the Law of Attraction Tarot

This article was written by Barbara Moore on November 30, -0001
posted under Law of Attraction Tarot

Summary

The Law of Attraction Tarot is a complete system designed to help you better understand the principles of the LOA, to identify and analyze your goals, and to effectively achieve those goals. The full color book in the kit version extensively explains the basic process. The cards help you connect with your divine self and Universe, accessing wisdom to proceed with confidence. The spreads included are designed to facilitate the process including identifying and overcoming limiting beliefs.

In-Depth Review:

This unique Tarot kit was designed specifically to help anyone put the Law of Attraction into practice in his or her life.  The full color book provides a clear introduction to the basic principles of the Law of Attraction and tells the reader how to effectively implement these principles to achieve the desired results.

This is no “the world is your catalog, place an order, sit back and wait for delivery” style of LOA. Just as Tarot readers understand the importance of asking the right question and magickal workers understand the importance of being very clear on intent before casting a spell, this kit helps the reader understand the importance of identifying and setting a clear goal.

For example, here are the bullet points (all expanded upon within the book’s text) for formulating a clear goal:

  • Understand what you really want
  • Define the goal in clear detail
  • Express your goal in a positive way
  • Write it down
  • Establish a quantifiable measure of success
  • Be sure to respect your values and who you are
  • Make the goal responsible
  • Identify at least three paths to achieve it

Really, the focus on the most efficient and effective application of the LOA is the strength of this kit. It is designed to help you identify your goal, first. This is surprisingly difficult for many people. As a reader, I have so many clients saying “I know I can achieve anything…I am just not sure what I should focus on right now.” This deck recognizes that challenge and provides ways to overcome it. Then it shows you how to create a plan in order to be a true co-creator with the Universe in creating the future you desire.

As for the deck itself, the Major Arcana cards are easily recognizable in terms of the RWS images. The Major cards are further classified as either introspective (or internal work) or active (or things that the querent should do).

The Minor cards, though, are designed to flesh out the plans outlined by the Major cards and really not recognizable as RWS images. They do not follow any clear system that I could identify. However, when one reflects upon the images and the meanings given in the book, it is easy to see, in some cases, how the LOA Tarot Minor cards have their roots in the RWS foundation. But not always. With this deck, it is best to keep an open mind and focus on the task at hand, trusting the deck to give you what you need to know regardless of traditional Tarot meanings.

For example, the 6 of Cups shows a grown man near an oversized hourglass (twice as tall as the man) and is said to represent the past. This is a different image from the RWS style decks but a similar meaning.

The 5 of Cups, however, shows a field of sunflowers and is said to mean “happiness.” Neither of these will resonate with the traditional RWS meanings.

One of the great strengths of this kit is the spread collection. It includes versions of the Celtic Cross and the Astrological House Spread…but both have been modified to suit LOA work and inquiries. Plus there are five other spreads designed to do things like: improve your ability to attract with intent, to overcome blocks and limiting beliefs, and to analyze a goal and your relationship to it.

This is no quick fix approach to life’s problems. It is a complete system designed to help you reflect on your goals, your spiritual and mundane aspirations, and achieve them.

Book suggestions for experienced Tarot users and this deck: The Secret 


In my new book, How to Survive Mercury Retrograde (And Venus & Mars, Too), I emphasize that a retrograde planet can be used productively. A planet does not have to be moving in direct motion to get positive results. The backward motion of a planet through an astrological sign gets us to be more reflective and does, to some degree, slow down... read this article
